I am going to link this to an example question on the site, if the consensus is that it is off-topic I will remove the example question.

My question is:

Are questions about differences between editions (in reason) on topic.

For instance: Does the first edition of book by author contain a different epilogue to the current edition?

Or: was the first edition of book really illustrated by the author?

    I am more curious about what leads you to believe they might not be on topic. Is that something you think you could summarize and maybe edit into your question? – user80 Apr 26 '17 at 6:43

    I don't see why not. As @Emrakul said above, do you have any reason to think that they might be off topic? – Mithical Apr 26 '17 at 6:58
  • @Emrakul I was worried people might have found this nit-picking (which is why I added the (in reason)). – Mirte Apr 26 '17 at 13:26

Sure, go for it. Those questions match my definition of "Literature," and I've wanted to ask a few of those questions myself. Your question has several upvotes at the moment, including mine, and doesn't seem to be in danger of closing a few hours after being asked.

Two moderators have already commented that they don't see why this shouldn't be squarely on-topic, for whatever that's worth.
